Hi Mike & Brandon,

A large part of the traffic over the last few weeks was repeated
ad-hominem attacks, always by the same people.
This is a violation of the list’s stated policy at
<https://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/gnu-misc-discuss>. It gives a
poor image of the project and undoubtedly silences many.
I call on to you to make it stop. I reckon moderation is a tough and
thankless task, and I am grateful for your work, but I think it’s in the
project’s interest to put an end to abuse of that sort.
Indeed, given the toxicity on this list, I had presumed there was no moderation
(any more). If it is that modereration is being applied, it is either sorely
deficient, or an indication of the language that GNU permits (in spite of the
'kind communication' document). Which is a good demonstration of why people
might not find it a welcoming organization.
